Question about Kenmore 15522 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

The black hose from the water fill valve missing.

The black hose from the water fill valve has been chewed off (except for 1/4 inch) by a rat. I can't find any remains of the hose or signs of where it went (route) to get to the inlet inside the tub. Does it just go around the bottom edge of the machine and up the side to the tub inlet or is there another place where it connects? Where can I find a diagram? Thanks.
This is a Kenmore 15522 (Whirlpool). Model is 665.1522000 on the label

PS going to be a pain to get the machine out which is why I ask rather than look at the outside of the tub.

Your inlet hose probably came loose on the left side of the dishwasher. If you pull the d/w out 6 inch. or so you will see the s-shaped hose going to the inlet port on the tub. Make sure it's not pinched or leaking..Catriver

Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. 
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. 
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. 
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. 
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

Hello. Anything is worth trying! But I would recommend epoxy. It works alot better with plastic and rubber items. Most of the leaks I have found in Kenmore machines are at the water pump. You may want to take a peek while it's running, just stay away from the wires!! Thanks!

Check the continuity of the thermal fuse. It's clipped onto the electronic control inside the console.
Let me know if you need more help.

Why machine wont fill?

Hello. Do you have a well for your water supply? If so, turn off the cold water to the washer and remove the supply hose from the back of the washer. Check the inlet water screen for blockage due to sand, sediment, or other debris. It's a fine filter so BE CAREFUL if you have to remove it--don't damage it at all! It protects the precision valve from debris getting caught and jamming the valve. Next, you will have to remove the top cover of the washer if the screen was clear. Locate the cold water valve assembly(pic 1, part 36) and check to see if 120v is at the valve coil when the washer is supposed to be filling. If the voltage is there, the valve is defective. Also, and more hidden, is the possibility of a defective water level sensor--(it's about 1.25 inches wide by approx 3 inches long), it will have a small wiring harness attached to it, it's mounted on the right side, approximately 6 inches or so from the back wall of the washer and has a black rubber tube attached and running down the back of the tub to the air chamber at the bottom. (see pic 2 and 3) This sensor can fail in 2 directions--it can either think there is water in the tub already and the washer won't fill or, most disastrously, constantly think there is *no* water in the tub and flood your house. The former can happen if the air chamber gets clogged with mold/mildew. The latter can happen if a pinhole should develop in the pressure hose(air pressure never builds up to tell the sensor to tell the main board to stop filling!)To check the latest stored error code, press and hold the start/pause and cancel buttons simultaneously. The error code will appear as long as the buttons are held.
E11 is fill time too long (either a clogged screen or defective valve)
E31 Pressure sensor communication error
E35 Pressure sensor indicates water overfill
MAIN BOARD 134556600
I hope I helped you!

Hello, I have a little giant #508158, pump is approx. 2 years old used about 4 times to drain a residential pool that is in-op @ the moment, however the pump has stopped working, the GFCI does "not" trip,...

To be precautious, if the damage to the wire is near to the appliance you might be lucky enough to savage it as it is hard to come by. Cut the wire 2 -3 inches away from the damage and hang to drain dry for 2 days or so if there is any sign of water ingress. leave the damaged wire in situ until you are ready to remake a connection with the salvaged piece, salvage any water tight shroud on the wire into the pump or replace it with new.

When you open the electric box on the pump it would pay you to test the pump motor with a mega, to see if the motor is down if it is need I say any more.

When you have finished the repair or what ever, it might be an idea to store the pump , either repaired or replaced inside a metal box and put some rat poison baited traps around, also leave a couple of Asprins out for the rat in case it get guts ache.

Im trying to replace the fill valve on a Kenmore washer model # 110.28812790 serial # CG4186264. I am having trouble getting the back off to get to the valve. Do you know how to do this? Thanks

I just replaced the fill valve on my front load Kenmore Elite HE4T it is actually a very easy fix.
1. Turn off the hot/cold water supply to the washer. 2. Remove the top cover of the washer by removing the three screws located at the top of the back panel. 3. Lift up the rear of the top cover about 1" and pull toward the rear of the washer. The top cover should pop off. 4. Remove the water supply hoses if they are not marked "H" and "C" mark them so that when you reconnect they are not reversed. 5. On the back - left side of the inlet valve is a spring clamp holding the black water supply hose to the inlet valve. Using a pair of pliers loosen and slide the clamp an inch away from the hose end. 6. Using your fingers and a flat tip screwdriver pry the inlet hose off of the inlet valve. 7. Place the new valve near the defective valve and remove the wires attached to the "H" and "C" inlet relays (they are two square blocks with two wire terminals on each). As you remove each wire attach it to the corresponding terminal on the replacement valve. I found it was best to pry off the plastic connectors with a screwdriver from the top while pulling them off. 8. There is one screw holding the valve to the back panel of the washer, remove it and remove the defective valve. 9. Attach the water black water supply hose to the new valve and slide the spring clamp back over the nipple of the inlet valve making sure it is near the end of the hose, but not over the edge. 10. Install the new valve by lining up the single screw hole and reinstalling the screw. 11. Reconnect the "H" and "C" supply hose paying attention that the "H" is connected to the inside and the "C" is connected to the outside inlet. 12. Turn on the water supply and run the washer through a fill cycle checking for leaks at the supply hose connections and the black hose at the outlet of the fill valve. 13. If everything is still dry reinstall the top cover by putting it in place and sliding it forward. Replace the three screws that hold the top panel.
The entire repair should take you less than 30 minutes. If you have enough room between the back of the washer and the wall you really don't even need to move the washer.

Washer takes about an hour to fill halfway with water

Check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

1.Drain hose is too low. Minimum 30 inches from the floor.2.Water fill valve is defective. If it fills with timer set to OFF,replace the water fill valve.
3. The Air hose from the tub to the water level valve is pinched or stopped up with soap scum. Check the air hose for a pin hole,pinched or obstructed..

Leaking from the bottom a lot, immediately when I start the cycle

Problem was that a rat or mouse chewed through the hose. I had seen small pieces of red plastic on the floor in the water. That was a clue that the plastic part of the hose had been chewed up.
